This top is a sample from a pattern I drew up based on something I saw in a children's fashion magazine. I figure this is a great design for summer or in winter to layer over a long sleeved tee. This one is actually made from cotton sheeting and is prone to a bit of wrinkling. I'm thinking next time I'll try a light denim or a light wool check for cooler months.
The bloomers were made from some fabric leftover after I made this.
I've been thinking a bit more lately about putting together a small collection of clothes and selling them online. Even though I have a husband who runs his own business, I have remained blissfully unaware of the requirements and responsibilities of running a small business. I'm kind of regretting that now and doing some research on the inter-web, and asking friends in small business what to do. But, they don't seem to have any idea either. Etsy? Big Cartel? I'm definitely not one to sit at a market stall all day, so online's the preference. Any suggestions, tips, do's and don'ts would be very helpful and much appreciated :)
I'll have a bit more time for sewing now this one is starting kindergarten in a couple of weeks. Can you believe it? She turned four about a week ago.
I will miss her terribly, but I'm so excited for her. My big girl. *blub*
